Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been Arsenal's fastest player over the Gunners start to the season

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been named as Arsenal's fastest player so far this season.

The Sunday Times report data from EA's Player Performance Index which lists the player's top speeds.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has recorded 35.19 kilometres per hour, almost an entire kilometre faster than his nearest teammate.

It is new signing Alexis Sanchez who features next, on 34.20 k/ph. Next up is fellow new boy Danny Welbeck with 33.69 k/ph.

Reputed speed king Theo Walcott has been out injured, yet his top pace last season was 32.89 k/ph, below all three.

Walcott has quite a challenge on his hands for the crown, with young defender Hector Bellerin breaking his training ground record at the end of last season.

In all it is fantastic news for Arsenal because at times last season they seemed very one-paced when Walcott was out injured.

Now their attack is proving more than a handful for defences, and with Walcott back, it will be even more deadly.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has made eight Premier League and Champions League starts this season and six appearances off the bench, with two goals and one assist.
